Is the Public Cloud Really Eating OpenStack's Lunch?

We've all read the news how AWS is making all other clouds irrelevant, and the naysayers around private cloud. But the research data and customer implementation reality just do not match that hype. What is the truth about public versus private versus hybrid cloud? What are customers really trying to do, and how does OpenStack fit in? This session will answer those questions and more, walking through what's real and what's hype and show how customers are using OpenStack to not only solve real-world problems and power next-generation applications, but also how it's a critical part of a hybrid cloud infrastructure. You will learn how to align workloads to the right infrastructure and how to develop a cloud strategy that works for your organization. The speaker has been in the cloud computing space for nearly a decade and will bring that context to bear. This is a vendor agnostic session that will include customer case studies and global research results.
